In the #1 New York Times bestseller Mindhunter, John Douglas, who headed the FBI's elite Investigative Support Unit, told the story of his brilliant and terrifying career tracking down some of the most heinous criminals in history. Using behavioral profiling and criminal investigative analysis to get into the head and psyche of both the criminal and victim – to feel what they felt at the critical moment – Douglas helped crack many high profile cases, including the Trailside Killer, the Atlanta child murders, and the Tylenol murders. Now, working again with his co-author Mark Olshaker, Douglas delves further into the criminal mind with a series of chilling new cases in Journey into Darkness: Follow the FBI's premier investigative profiler as he penetrates the minds and motives of the most terrifying serial killers.

John Douglas – Mark Olshaker: Journey into Darkness How the FBI's premier profiler penetrates the minds of the most terrifying serial criminals

Nagyon érdekes, teljesen szakkönyv, olvasmányos formában. Douglas – Robert Resslerrel együtt az elsők között volt, kik a profilozást elkezdték és sikeresen alkalmazták – majd tanították is – az FBI keretei közt, “a job I’d created for myself as the first full-time criminal profiler at the Behavioral Science division of the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.” Bár a profil készítése működött a 60-as évektől, mégis várni kellet J. Edgar Hoover 1972-es haláláig, hogy a profilozó egység – BAU – felálljon: “essentially had to wait for J. Edgar Hoover to die before profiling could even be considered a legitimate crime-fighting tool.”
A könyv 13 fejezetbe csoportosítva tárgyaja azokat a sorozatgyilkosságokat, amelyek felderítésében Doudlas csoportjánk meghatározó szerepe volt. (Néhány esetben soha nem találták meg a gyilkost.)
Van keserű koklúzió is: they kill or rape or torture because they enjoy it, because it gives them satisfaction and a feeling of domination and control so lacking from every other aspect of their shabby, inadequate, and cowardly lives. So much do many of them enjoy what they do that they want nothing more than to experience it again at every opportunity.”
